“The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: 

Decide what you want.”

I hope that you have decided what you want from our LEAN into Summer Whole30 Event. I hope that your main focus is on the health benefits you will receive. Yes, you may see a lower number on the scale when all is said and done (I’ll have more to say about that later), but there is so much more to living and eating clean than weight loss.

I have to tell you that I’m very excited! We currently have 18 of us signed up to participate. A few gals have even gotten a head start on us, but I’m hopeful that they will decide to continue on with us when they reach their own 30 day mark.

Doing a Whole30 with a partner or a group is much easier than going it alone. Let your fellow 30-ers hear from you here! It doesn’t take long to post a comment or reply. It will help keep you connected, focused and on the right track. It will also likely help others of us do the same.

I can’t emphasize enough that according to my friend and hero food evangelist, Melissa Hartwig, This. Will. Change. Your. Life. Pay attention to paying attention to the changes that are bound to take place. You may begin to notice brighter eyes, smoother skin, clearer thinking and an overall sense of well being within the first week! Who doesn’t want some of that?

Congratulations! You have made a commitment to yourself and a choice that can only bring benefit to you and to those important folks around you. I’m impressed with you already!

Chow (Get it?),


Love you. Love your food.

    Happy day 1 fellow 30ers. This week, your body might show some resistance. That is totally normal. Lean on our evangelist and she will get you through it. Once over the hump, you will begin to “glow” (as I was told yesterday).
    Some of us have done this a few times so feel free to ask questions or talk through some things. Happy eating all!

    Thanks for the shout out, Trisha!

    Trisha is an experienced 30-er. And she sees more and better benefits each time she rocks a Whole30.

    Stay strong, friends! The best is yet to come.

    So, besides the massive migraines (not whole 30 induced, had before) I slept well but I just could not run this morning at all!!! Is that to do with the whole 30?

    1. Jeanye Post author

      I would doubt there’s a connection to the running – especially if you’re eating enough. However, some folks experience a bit of an energy drain the first week or so. This is due to your body getting used to you not keeping it on a false high by shoving lots of carbs in it all day. Be patient. After a couple of weeks your energy will definitely level out and you’ll feel terrific!
